China Retains Loan Prime Rate

China left its benchmark lending rates for the second straight month, on Monday.


The one-year loan prime rate was retained at 4.15 percent and the five-year loan prime rate at 4.80 percent.


The rate was last reduced in November, which was the first reduction since the new lending rate was introduced.


The loan prime rate is fixed monthly based on the submission of 18 banks, though Beijing has influence over the rate-setting. This new lending rate replaced central bank's traditional benchmark lending rate in August.


The People's Bank of China reportedly introduced CNY 250 billion into the financial system via reverse repo on Monday.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
